Nearly 70 years after Lewis Frongner worked with other military men and women to save the world and fought with valor in World War II, he took the trip of a lifetime to the memorial built in the veterans’ honor.   
On Thursday, Sept. 18, the Morgan resident joined 65 other veterans from around the state in taking a once- in-a-lifetime trip to the nation’s capital to see the World War II Memorial.  The group of heroes joined together in a hangar at the Utah National Guard for a celebration before departing.
The send-off ceremony was presented by Major General Jeffrey Burton, the Adjutant General Utah National Guard. Celebrate America Stardust Singers welcomed the veterans, and Governor Gary Herbert addressed the noteworthy group at the Salt Lake Airport before they embarked on their journey.  The vets then enjoyed the red carpet treatment.  
Frongner said this was the first time he has ever ridden in a big airplane.
While in flight the vets received a mail call just as they had years ago in the service.  Their families had written letters before the flight to be handed out to the men and women being honored.
From the red carpet beginning throughout the rest of the trip, they were treated like royalty.  “They were honored and celebrated everywhere they went,” Frongner’s son Randy said.  Randy accompanied his dad for the entire trip.  Each vet was able to bring a companion called a guardian to experience the entire Honor Flight and provide support.

In 1985 Randell Heath and his wife Tina drove to Morgan in search of the Browning offices.  What they found was more than our local gun maker. After driving through Peterson they fell in love with the area—so much so that they decided to move here.
